DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Linear Alkyl benzene (LAB) Market - Segmented by End-Use, Application, and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2017 - 2022)" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Linear alkyl benzene, an organic compound, is an intermediary in the production of surfactants, which is mainly used in detergents. LAB removes oil and fatty soil absorbed into the fabric, textile or any other material. The compound is used in combination with other surfactants to improve cleaning performance. LAB is either converted into a surfactant or directly used for applications such as in solvents, paints.
The growing demand for cleaners is expected to drive the market, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period). Surfactants serve as a replacement for dodecyl benzene sulfonates, thus benefitting the LAB market. However, stringent governmental regulations and environmental impacts of LAB are factors hindering the market growth.
The market has been segmented on the basis of end-use, application, and region. Based on end-use, the market has been segmented into dish washing liquids, household detergents & cleaners, industrial cleaners, personal care products, and others including agricultural herbicides. The market, based on application type, has been segmented into surfactants, and others including solvents, paints.
Developing countries such as China, and India are expected to create opportunities for the linear alkyl benzene market, owing to the growing demand for cleaners.
